San Bernardino County Assessor/Recorder


Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Former State Senator and long time business owner Bob Dutton will run for San Bernardino County Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk.  In this role, Dutton will look to provide over 2 million residents of California’s largest geographical county with independent oversight on property assessments, accurate information on county documents, and increased efficiency with the administration of public services.

“I have always taken a commonsense approach to the issues,” said Dutton.  “My experience as both a business owner and elected representative will provide the residents of San Bernardino with a voice on the county level.  As we recover from an historic recession, I will look to deliver efficient and effective service for a region in which I have been dedicated for nearly forty years.”

After serving in both the Army Reserve and National Guard, Bob Dutton’s commitment to the Inland Empire and desire to own a business was realized when he opened a real estate investment and management firm in Rancho Cucamonga.  As Dutton’s knowledge of the real estate market grew, so did his ability to affect positive change for the residents of San Bernardino County. He won his first election to the Rancho Cucamonga City Council in 1998 and was re-elected in 2000.

In 2002, Dutton used his knowledge as a business owner and reputation as a community leader to win a seat in the State Assembly. In 2004, he successfully ran for the State Senate where he represented portions of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, and was re-elected with nearly 60 percent of the vote.

“I had the pleasure of working with Bob when he was in the legislature.  His commitment to the residents of San Bernardino County, his knowledge of the issues, and his commonsense approach has always provided a sense of direction when it was needed most,” said San Bernardino County Supervisor Janice Rutherford.       

As the next County Assessor, Senator Dutton will use this approach to offer the efficient and effective service needed for the residents San Bernardino County.  In addition to running a small business and being involved with numerous professional organizations, Senator Dutton is focused on giving back to the community. He has served as president or board member for numerous community and civic organizations including the local Kiwanis Club, YMCA, Red Cross, the Chamber of Commerce and the Community Foundation.

Bob and his wife Andrea Guillen, have been married for more than 30 years.  Andrea, a fourth generation Chino resident, is the Professor and Program Director of Radiology at Chaffey Community College.  Their daughter Kara, who received her Master’s in 2010 from the University of La Verne, is working in the banking industry

    Isn’t this site OC Political? Not LA Politcal, SB Political, R Political or SD Political. Maybe Allen will start writing stories relating to Kern and Imperial Counties next…
